One (or more) Sentence Summary:  Live Your Life is a very easy read.  Each chapter is labeled so you have a pretty good idea of theme for the day.  This makes it easy if you need to go back and work on topic.  Also, at the end of each chapter are thinking points and action items to help you conquer the topic.  

I did really good days 1 - 3 and fell apart day 4.  The good news, you can jump right back in and there is no need to beat yourself up (what's the point?).  This is when I download the Companion Workbook (it is free) to help me through my rut.  I highly recommend using the workbook.

Live Your Life is a book that I will have to go back to as I am not very good at stick to everything.  I may have to modify the book to be 14 weeks instead of 14 days or Dr. LeFevre can come live with me for 14 days and keep me focused! 

I think my favorite chapter/task was Chapter 9, Do It Anyway. I realized that when my kids say, I don't feel like doing xxx now and I reply with something like, I don't care what you feel like doing, I said do it.  So why is okay that when I don't feel like doing something.....I don't?  Chapter 9 is helping me get it done!

Ann LeFevre is the creator and owner of Restore Body and Soul, launched in 2017 with the goal of meeting the therapeutic needs of the whole person using research-backed Western and time-tested Eastern techniques. Dr. LeFevre released her first book, Live Your Life: 14 Days to the Best You in January 2018. Dr. LeFevre has been a social worker for nearly 20 years, and has her bachelor's, master's and doctorate degrees in social work. She's been a practicing psychotherapist since 2002. She also became a massage therapist in 2016, and a certified acupressurist in 2017. Dr. LeFevre made the decision to combine social work and massage therapy after noticing that even though her psychotherapy clients reported feeling better as the result of addressing unresolved or longstanding issues, they were still tense, had poor posture and chronic health problems, and they still weren't sleeping very well. She recommended that her clients receive therapeutic massage, attend mindfulness and other wellness classes, and seek out holistic treatments, but they rarely did. It took a great amount of time and effort to find a reputable massage therapist who understood their concerns, and classes and holistic treatments that fit their specific needs at the right time. So, she decided to eliminate those barriers and provide a broad range of services in one location with the same provider... and Restore Body and Soul was born. Dr. LeFevre decided to publish her first book as a way to summarize lessons and tips she's taught her psychotherapy clients over the past 15 years, and also included some newer lessons she's learned through doing massage therapy. Dr. LeFevre resides in the San Francisco Bay Area, and she continues to see private psychotherapy clients and massage clients, while also offering small classes for insomnia treatment, and workshops on self-acupressure and other health and wellness topics.
